This case study documents how one faculty introduced a range of strategic initiatives designed to build a stronger research education environment. The initiatives were led by multiple people to create a strong research culture, particularly for research students. This case study is also a story about forging opportunistic links with other initiatives, both institutional and national.

It starts by setting the context of change and the challenges facing the development of a research education culture within this specific faculty. It takes up a number of initiatives designed to incorporate particular kinds of activity to broaden the research student experience and provide for better integration of students and research cultures. It discusses how these events were built into a doctoral student plan and concludes with some reflections of those involved on the overall development.
